For the sake of doubt avoidance “period,” in this context is canvas or apparently canvas structures supported by wood poles and ropes, or wood structures, or structures that are made to that mimic types commonly in use in what is considered the medieval to renaissance period in Europe and England. Period may include facauds or blinds that are period in appearance, or are natural looking and conceal modern camping structures from the view of a casual observer. Whether a structure, group of structures, or facade is “period,” to the satisfaction of the Maypole Event Steward will be decided by the Event Steward or their appointed representative when such structures arrive.
